Simple on Greenwich Ave

  • 6

There is work being done on a storefront just south of Starbucks.

The sign says

"simple"
"food and wine"

Anyone have intel? Is this a resto or a shop?

  1. When you say just south of starbucks......is it 1 storefront? 1 block? What was there prior?? Is it in the old Versailles space??

      from the corner, it goes- starbucks, colony flowers, gelato, then this place. It's two storefronts down from Sbux, but Colony and the gelato place share one building, no?

    2. Hi:

      I walked past it this morning. It appears to be a restaurant. It is in the old Versailles location. Speaking of Versailles, I can't believe how much it looks like the old space inside.

        It is the old Versailles space..........the Ave. is tough, I wish them well.....

        Any ideas who is behind the project??

      2. I thought I saw a sign once saying My Favorite Place in Cos Cob was opening another location on Greenwich Ave - it was suppose to be a few doors down from Starbucks. Maybe it's them and they're giving the 2nd location a different name?

          No. My Favorite Place is down the street a bit further, on the same side. The Avenue seems to be undergoing a bit of a restaurant renaissance of sorts. Meli Melo (the crepe place further done the avenue) is expanding. Looks like it will be twice as big as it is now.
